Generation Sex

Episode 2 of 3

Billie JD Porter unlocks the secrets surrounding one of Argentina's biggest passions - sex - as she explores the tug of war between traditional values and modern freedoms.

Billie JD Porter travels to Argentina to unlock the secrets surrounding one of the country's biggest passions - sex.

Arriving in Buenos Aires only days before the Dia de la Primavera festival, which celebrates the first day of spring, she finds signs of sex everywhere from the music to the partying, and the steady stream of customers visiting Telos or love hotels. But she discovers that Argentina is a country full of contradictions, where sexual freedoms run up against the power of the Catholic Church, which frowns on homosexuality and supports the government's criminalisation of abortion, and where years of dictatorship have left their mark.

As the spring break approaches, Billie explores the tug of war between traditional values and modern freedoms, immersing herself in the stories of young people as they seize every opportunity to enjoy themselves and have fun.

The film is the second in Billie's three-part journey across South America, unlocking the secrets and obsessions of the continent.
